Network Programmability with OpenConfig and Junos

by Juniper Employee ‎03-07-2016 08:29 PM - edited ‎03-07-2016 08:33 PM

Building upon the previous post in the YANG blog series, we take a further look into third-party data models and Junos; specifically those defined by the OpenConfig operator group. 




For years, network operators have been faced with developing a number of techniques to manage multi-vendor environments. Today, these network elements are often configured via vendor-specific CLIs (command-line interface) or through well structured programmatic standard (e.g. NETCONF/XML) or proprietary interfaces each colored with their own vendor-specific hue. Outside of the configuration aspects of these network elements, the extraction of telemetry and operational state information has also been fragmented and inconsistently available forcing operators to rely on a combination of techniques such as SNMP polling, syslog parsing and periodic screen-scraping of show commands to glean the operational state of their network.
